The book uses direct voice while talking to his audience, so it makes the children feel as though the author is talking to them herself. The book includes a lot of vivid details that help the students visualize what the author is describing. The author overall concept describes the author's experience about living in a place where you experience both sides of the spectrum in the course of a year. "During my travels to schools across America, many children have asked me questions about the dynamics of light in Alaska and the Arctic. Is it dark in Alaska all the time? What are the northern lights, and who turns them on? How do you sleep in the summer if it’s always light?" ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802796362, Paperback)

Imagine a land where the sun rises at 1:58 a.m. in the summer and shines for less than four hours on a winter's day.  The animals in the wilderness near Fairbanks, Alaska, witness some of the world's greatest temperature extremes and light variations ever year.  At an average low of -16 degrees Fahrenheit, the winters may be unpleasantly frigid, but the light shows are always glorious!
